PERSPECTIVE: THE AFRICAN SUN RISING

It is Saturday morning, July 28, 2012 at 7:07 in Nairobi, Kenya.  In Colorado it is 10:07 p.m. Friday night July 27, 2012.   San Francisco, Seattle and L.A. must be Friday night 9:07 pm. 

As the sun is leaving you guys, it is rising here…….

 ……observe and remember that we are not so far apart…..

 ….. just on opposite ends of the same continuum…. or some such poetic thing.  Here is a better stab at poetic license:

The Sun Never Says

Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”

Look what happens with
A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky.

– From The Gift by Hafiz
